Politics affects many issues of an international nature, such as climate change. Bringing the nations of the world together to reach agreement through international mechanisms, such as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), requires broad buy-in and follow-through for the long-term. Beyond the politics and policies of nation states, especially the U.S. and China (the two largest carbon emitters), governments around the world have put forward many climate change-related plans to meet their Paris commitments.
Join Christine Loh, former Under Secretary for the Environment of the Hong Kong SAR government and a leading voice in public policy in Hong Kong for a presentation and discussion of how governments meet these commitments, the critical importance of working with business and the need to galvanize the public to change behavior.
This is a private event open to UCLA School of Law and UCLA Anderson students. Please RSVP.
